Billie Davis


Billie Davis was a vivacious and talented English performer who probably deserved far more success in her 1960's singles career than she achieved. She was in many ways an archetypal 60's girl- dressing and behaving very much in keeping with the optimism and free thinking of the period. Her version of "Tell Him" looked like it could mark the beginning of a major career for the young artist. However, she was lucky to survive a car crash involving herself and bass guitarist "Jet Harris"- an accident that could easily have terminated both their careers.
Apart from her own solo output, she appeared on record with other artists too. Her first taste of success came with Mike Sarne's "Will I What" on which she shares credit for her notable, but small, vocal contribution. She later joined forces with a singer from Birmingham called Keith Powell- together they cut some unsuccessful singles under the name of "Keith And Billie". Billie's biggest hit was her first solo release, but several of her other records should have finished higher too. Her music moved with the times and her late 1960s output was very different from the novelty she had cut with Sarne. Although she reached the chart during 1968, her soulish versions of "Angel In The Morning" and "Nights In White Satin" deserved a better fate. In fact all her singles are worth seeking out.
